Opening in 1989, Majilis Gallery was born of a desire to introduce international fine art within the city's once sleepy trading port. This original windtower house in Bastakiya (now known as Al Fahidi District) was leased by expatriate, Alison Collins, who first came to Dubai with her family in 1976 to work as an interior designer. A true haven for artists and creative minds, in Dubai's most historic district.
